Roles of the Raf/MEK/ERK and PI3K/PTEN/Akt/mTOR pathways in controlling growth and sensitivity to therapy-implications for cancer and aging
Dysregulated signaling through the Ras/Raf/MEK/ERK and PI3K/PTEN/Akt/mTOR pathways is often the result of genetic alterations in critical components in these pathways or upstream activators. Unrestricted cellular proliferation ...
Recent discoveries in the cycling, growing and aging of the p53 field
The P53 gene and it product p53 protein is the most studied tumor suppressor, which was considered as oncogene for two decades until 1990. More than 60 thousand papers on the topic of p53 has been abstracted in Pubmed. ...
Roles of neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) in human cancer
Cancer remains one of the major cause of death in the Western world. Although, it has been demonstrated that new therapies can improve the outcome of cancer patients, still many patients relapse after treatment. Therefore, ...
Recent progress in genetics of aging, senescence and longevity: focusing on cancer-related genes
It is widely believed that aging results from the accumulation of molecular damage, including damage of DNA and mitochondria and accumulation of molecular garbage both inside and outside of the cell. Recently, this paradigm ...
Recent progress in targeting cancer
In recent years, numerous new targets have been identified and new experimental therapeutics have been developed. Importantly, existing non-cancer drugs found novel use in cancer therapy. And even more importantly, new ...
Hox-gene expression as a biomarker for igf-1r therapeutics
This invention provides methods for treating or preventing the onset of a tumor in a subject, wherein the tumor is determined to overexpress a Hox gene, including administering to the subject a therapeutically or ...
